Recruitment Roundup #18

Employee turnover is a significant challenge in the logistics industry, where maintaining a stable and skilled workforce is crucial for operational efficiency. High turnover rates can disrupt workflow, increase training costs, and negatively impact productivity. Understanding and addressing the common causes of turnover can help logistics companies create a more supportive and engaging work environment, ultimately reducing turnover and enhancing employee satisfaction and retention.

Lack of Career Development Opportunities

Many employees leave due to a lack of career development opportunities. When workers feel they have no prospects for advancement, they become disengaged and seek employment elsewhere. So, how can you develop your career

  • Implement on-the-job training to improve their technical skills (using specialised equipment and technology). Also, to make training available to develop soft skills in the workplace - improving communication and problem-solving skills are fundamental within the logistics industry.
  • Encourage employees to undertake relevant certifications (Certified Professional in Supply Management, Forklift Operator Certification and Certified in Logistics, Transportation and Distribution) 
  • Encourage cross-training development where employees can learn different roles within the company this can broaden their skills and help them understand various aspects of the business. 

Poor Management

Poor management is a major cause of high turnover. The fast-paced nature of logistics means managers often struggle to invest time in their employees, leading to feelings of being undervalued and unsupported. How can this be improved?

  • Implement regular feedback for continuous improvement and surveys to gather insights on management effectiveness and areas for development
  • Improve communication within the workplace - from open-door policies to team meetings

Work-Life Balance

Achieving a healthy work-life balance is a top priority for many employees. Without this balance, workers may become disengaged and less productive. Many report decreased productivity and burnout due to poor work-life balance, with 88% of UK employees experiencing burnout in the past two years.

Excessive Workload

An excessive workload can cause burnout and excessive stress, especially during peak periods like Black Friday and Christmas. Companies that do not hire enough staff to handle increased workloads risk overwhelming their current employees, leading to higher turnover rates.
